We are a small, but active and very enthusiastic astronomical society based in the North East. We hold regular monthly meetings with first class speakers, organise observing events, and participate in outreach with multiple schools and youth groups. We are a charitable not for profit organisation, all our members' time is given voluntarily. Reg. Charity no. 1172061

Tea, coffee and biscuits are always available for a nominal fee.



We organise outdoor stargazing sessions, Moonwatches, Star-B-Qs, Meteor shower viewing and solar observing events for the general public.
